there will be consequences and you will be held accountable. >> rose: i am pleased to have bob gates back at this table. welcome. >> thank you, charlie. >> rose: so what are you doing since you left government? >> well, i am working on a book, a mental with a of my time under presidents bush and obama as secretary of defense, and doing some speaking but staying as far from washington, d.c. as i can. >> rose: when you look at writing a book, i mean, how hard is that for you to take the time anand think of all of the events and make sure that you get it right as you recollect it? >> first i have given myself a little out at the beginning by saying this is a purely personal reminiscence of what i experienced and what i saw, i am not trying to write the defensive history and others will have a different perspective on things, but it was -- we were at war every day of the four and a half years i was in office, and as i write in the book it wasn't just the wars in iraq and afghanistan, it was daily wars with the congress, with other agencies, with the white house, and also i would say with my own building, w
up from there. and bob corker the senator from tennessee who was also on "meet the press" yesterday has proposed some legislation that instead cuts $641 million out of medicare. we'll see some scale up in that direction. there are some things that republicans could like in that initial bid. >> let me bring in congresswoman karen bass. so you're hearing all the sides going back and forth but the one thing that everybody seems to just about agree on is that we're not getting anywhere fast. lindsey graham says we're going over the cliff among others. what do you think? >> i don't believe we'll go over the cliff. i do think people are drawing a line in the sand which is a typical part of negotiation like your previous speakers said. i think that everybody understands the consequences, that the president has put forward a plan that would reduce taxes, or maintain the tax cuts for 98% of the u.s. public. and so i don't believe that my republican colleagues want to see taxes go up on 100% but they do need to come to table and counter the proposal. if they want changes and entitlements they
making veterans in their own backyards in their own families. >>> nbc sports bob costas created a whole lot of controversy last sunday night while coming on the news about kansas city belcher having killed his girlfriend before taking his own life. he says if belcher didn't possess a gun he and cassandra would be alive. kostas spent the week defending his comments. here he is on "o'reilly factor." >> i never used the words gun control. i quoted from a column by jason wit lock who was in kansas city for a long time. now is on the fox sports web site in which he mentioned credibly a gun culture in this country. it plays itself out in many ways but it's a mentality about and toward guns that almost always leads to tragedy rather than safety. >> not always leads to tragedy. i think you are a great sports caster. i do. i thought you did a terrific job at the olympics. for the same reason i don't try to do commentary on sports you might want to do a little brushing up on the facts before you comment on the gun culture. 4,000 times a day in this country 4,000 times a day guns are used to preve
even beyond their wildest dreams. abc's bob woodruff has the story. >> reporter: 32-year-old gabriel posey, a staff sergeant in the army, just returned from the sands of afghanistan. but now here, in los angeles, he's about to get a huge surprise. what he knows is that he's been matched up with a mentor to help him get a start in the field he's dreamed about much of his life, screen writing. what he doesn't know is that his mentor is one of the biggest names in hollywood. >> your brothers were killed in combat. >> this is one of the great things about people in the military, they're good at solving problems. those people are worth their weight in precious metals. >> what will be the number one thing you'll tell him about getting into the film industry? >> okay. you have got to say i know who i am, i know what my kills are, and i'm in this for the long haul. perseverance. it all comes down to that. >> reporter: i told gabriel his mentor wasn't well known. just someone with connections. i lied. i'm going to show you who this is. i think you'll be very happy. >> oh! wow! no way. i love
's a question, though, willie, whether you want the job or not. >> right. >> i asked bob riley, i've said this 1,000 times, it seems extraordinarily important if you're a union member in the northeast, and like me, you want your factories running again. i asked bob riley, i don't understand, why did mercedes go to tuscaloosa county, alabama, instead of filling up the factories in connecticut? 15 minutes away from yale. or in rhode island. 20 minutes away from brown. i mean, right by some of the most highly trained, brilliant minds in the world. that's easy. the work force rules are so insane there, there's no way that mercedes or bmw or airbus would ever dream of going to those states. do you want the jobs or do you not want the jobs? >> and that plays out all over the south in harold's home state of tennessee, auto plant comes back, you get a bunch of jobs but at a very low wage. so the question is do you want to lower ourselves to the global standard of wages so that you have many more jobs -- >> that's a better option. >> that question has to be answered -- >> stronger middle class in union s
in all of this and that is from bob costas, veteran sportscaster who made some personal comments in quoting someone else. he talked about his own feelings on gun control. i want to play that for you and get your thoughts because we got a lot of feedback on this morning. >> you want some actual perspective on this? a bit of it comes from the kansas city based writer jason whitlock who i always do not agree but today said it so well we may quote and paraphrase from the end of the his article. our current gun culture whitlock wrote insures more and more domestic disputes will end in the ultimate tragedy. more convenience stores and con fromtation will leave teenage boys bloody and dead. they bait us into embracing confrontation rather than avoiding. in the coming days javon belcher's actions and their possible connection to football will be analyzed who knows but here, wrote jason whitlock, is what i believe if javon belcher didn't possess a gun he and casandra perkins would both be alive. martha: what do you think about that? should he have gone there? >> well, he is allowed to hav
